               How does Coaching work? 
I begin with an assessment of your identified, current need, help with a specific project or a general problem. Together, we will set up action steps, and during phone calls or emails, we can look at your responses, refine the plan  and develop new steps to get you to where you want to be. The frequency and duration of coaching depends on you. You may want regular supportive contact, or you may need intensive work if you have a project deadline to meet.

Coaching can be a short-term or ongoing relationship in which the ideas shared and the skills learned endure beyond the coaching sessions. You are not paying for short-term benefits, but for changes to achieve goals and maximize your writing potential. Coaching is always focused on your wants, needs and goals. 

When might you need to hire a coach:

  • You know what you want to do, but are having a hard time doing it.
  • You're bogged down with obstacles and need motivation.
  • You're not making steady progress with a project or your career.
  • You care about your project and your career but need help with focus.
  • You need to learn how to better manage time, prioritize, organize, set goals, complete projects.
  • You need strategies to deal with specific challenges.
  • You want to make a permanent shift to a higher level of performance in your writing.


Coaching need not be expensive. I can

tailor a plan to meet your needs and budget.

What a Coach can do: 

  • Empower you to move from dream to reality
  • Identify a plan to solve problems, prioritize to achieve specific goals
  • Develop action steps to move forward with a project or your career
  • Hold you accountable
  • Help you gain clarity and focus
  • Create a writing business plan for success
  • Teach you skills for effective writing
  • Work with you to overcome obstacles such as procrastination or block
  • Maximize your writing potential
  • Expand your writing platform

My strengths lie in a commitment to support writers to realize their dreams, to perfect their craft and

to celebrate their unique artistry.
